Stephan J. Anemaat- A Poem

Broken Glass

A vision cast upon the stone,
A wish enthralled on eyelids shut,
       Changes naught but covets more,
       Shells washed up upon the shore.
Awake, ‘tis less to be without,
We are but prey to constant want,
       For we, whose fickle folly spent,
       Mere cracks in dust at time’s lament.
In vain, we reached with outstretched arms,
To hold, to love, to be but touched
       By light we placed in broken glass
       And we but jagged shadows cast.
